30 Hours Childcare

Hi All,

Earlier this year I lived in London permanently and was able to work overtime and do Oncall shifts at work, this has led me to just eek over the 100k threshold for 30 hours childcare for this financial year. Next year I will be below threshold as I can no longer work overtime or Oncall due to a change in circumstances. Our son turns 3 next week.

As we will be (well) below the income threshold for next financial year will eligibility start in the spring term or does last year's income disqualify us? How is the income assessed?
